Candidates hoping to represent the people of Harrow East in the next parliament will answer questions at a hustings event at a synagogue this evening (December 5).

Conservative Bob Blackman, who has represented the constituency since 2010, will share the stage with Labour candidate Cllr Pamela Fitzpatrick and Liberal Democrat representative Adam Bernard.

It will be hosted by Stanmore and Canons Park Synagogue, in London Road, from 8pm to 10pm tonight and chaired by television producer Martin Levene.

The sold-out event was ticketed, with all proceeds going to St Luke’s Hospice in Harrow.

However, it will be live streamed on social media and viewers will be able to submit questions via the webpage. Click here to get involved.

Organisers said they are expecting a “large audience from all parts of Harrow” and are anticipating a “lively” evening.

The seat is viewed as a key battleground for major political parties, with Mr Blackman securing a majority of just 1,757 in 2017.

Previous hustings in Harrow have covered a wide range of subjects, including Brexit, hate crimes and mental health funding.
